Reformed Theology

5 posts in this topic

I've heard this term thrown around but I have never gotten a good explanation of exactly what it means. Can you explain? I'm pretty sure at least one church we have been part of specifically said they were "reformed" but still didn't explain what that means.

"Reformed" means that they essentially take the theology that the original reformers of the Catholic church realized from the Scriptures. Some of the denominations that are specifically "Reformed" are Presbyterians, Puritans(even though they don't exist anymore), Reformed Baptists, and some Anglican churches. Some of the specific theology included in that package should be, election, predestination, Scripture as sole source of authority, and in most cases, agreement that some views are heresy and should be avoided as such. Hope that answers your question.

Hmm, sort of :). I'm not sure mine counts as reformed then although we do believe Scripture is the sole source of authority. This is a topic I need to do some more research on I think.

It's definitely a term someone should just say and not really mean or be informed about it. I would encourage everyone to at least know something about what each denomination believes and why it is wrong or right according to Scripture.
